3.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely bonkers., 31 Aug 2014
This review is from: Oral-B Pro 6000 Smart Series With Bluetooth Technology Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This tooth brush is completely over the top, and I think must have been the result of a meeting at Oral B where they decided to make the most bonkers toothbrush they could to see if anyone would buy it. It's truly insane.

It's actually excellent at what it does though. The little wireless smart guide is surprisingly motivating at making you brush your teeth properly. I'm in my 40's and I still find myself trying to get the little face to smile as if I was a little boy - it's annoying how obviously susceptible to feeble psychological ploys I must be...

Bluetooth connectivity? Oh come on, who needs that? The phone app gives you the same countdown timer as the smart guide, and tracks your brushing history in the form of graphs. It also gives you news updates, and hints and tips, and the novelty will wear off as soon as you realise you're getting toothpaste all over your phone. When people notice the app on my phone I'm actually faintly embarrassed to own something as ridiculous as a bluetooth enabled toothbrush. Absolutely crazy.

The thing is though, this brush is pretty much identical to the Oral-B 4000 toothbrush, only with extra bells and whistles that are just gimmcks you don't need. In fact, as I find myself only ever using the basic cleaning mode on this thing, I'd be just as well off with using the considerably cheaper Pro 600 version.

This toothbrush is undeniably good at what it does, but when you can get the core suitability and effectiveness from a version costing 25% of the cost of this one, (the Pro 600 version) then I can't in good faith give this a good score. Save your money.
